Jussie Smollett might’ve gone straight from his jail cell to the studio … because he just dropped a new song where he directly addresses his court case.
The former “Empire” star released a single Friday called “Thank You God” and some of the lyrics are quite interesting, given his recent circumstances.
Jussie sings … “Some people chasing that clout / Just remember this … this ain’t that situation / You think I’m stupid enough to kill my reputation?”

The song comes on the heels of Jussie’s jail release pending his appeal. He has been out for 3 weeks and seems to have put together the song in that time.
Jussie also sings … “It’s like they’re hell-bent on not solving the crime / Taking out the elements of race and trans and homophobia that’s straight taking lives / But turn around and act like I’m the one that killed the strides.”
He dedicates the track to “the people that kept it real, and who kept it true”… and he states that he will donate all proceeds from the track to the Rainbow Push Coalition and Secure the Bag Safety.

As you know … a jury found Jussie guilty of 5 of the 6 felony counts against him for lying to Chicago police about being the victim of a racist, homophobic attack … and a judge sentenced him to 5 months behind bars.
But, Jussie was released from jail March 16 while he tries to get his sentence for the hoax attack overturned.
Jussie believes music is the best way to express his thoughts right now… and it’s quite an emotional song.
